Every 2-3 days have a "chop fest"! Fill a few tupperware boxes with lots of washed and chopped/sliced salad and veggies e.g. lettuce, carrots, cucumber, onions, mushrooms, peppers, baby tomatoes, corn, peas, beans, little broccoli florets, bean sprouts and so on.
Then anytime you want to prepare a quick salad, or stuff a pitta bread or add a few veggies to a stir fry - they all all ready for you! Like your own private salad bar!

In full disclosure, my friends call me "Gidget" because I LOVE and collect kitchen Gadgets... But I absolutely LOVE my Vidalia Chop Wizard. Using the Chop Wizard I am able to make fresh mango salsa in less than 5 minutes. The most time consuming part is peeling and coring the Mango (if only they made a gadget....) The Chop Wizard uniformly and easily chops the peppers and mangos without having to manually cut the produce. 267

Lettuce wraps are the best on-the-go sandwich! And, I can fill up without guilt...almost anything that makes a sandwich works great but here's some mix ideas: - tuna/celery/chopped walnuts - chopped tomatoes/cucumbers/plain yogurt - chopped apple/a few chopped nuts, and raisins - chopped egg mixed with a little bit of low-fat mayo - chopped grapes and strawberries - shredded carrots & cucumber with a few raisins 213
